SINGER - SONGWRITER - SPEAKER
Sometimes what we think will be our greatest trials turn out to be our biggest blessings.
“I asked God for patience and flexibility. He gave me Allison and Morgan...”
"The song 'Don't Give Up On Me' was written after Morgan and our whole family had a meltdown over a Swanson pot pie. ;-) We're always learning. My duet partner below is Logan Blade. He's a young man on the autism spectrum who is very talented. Hearing his story about a music teacher, who didn't give up on him, gave this song a whole new meaning. It's always an honor to share the stage with him. Autism has introduced me to some pretty incredible people. I'm a blessed mom."
If children came with an owner’s manual, we’d all feel a lot more confident in the countless decisions that have to be made regarding their health and their future. Instead we learn together, by trial and error, wrapped in love.
As a parent of a child with special needs, the goals may change, but the dreams are the same. We want our children to live a happy and fulfilled life, blossoming into everything God intended them to be.
“I have been in that place of isolation and hopelessness. I know what it’s like to be consumed with fear and doubt. My heart is for people who are still there. I hope, through sharing what I’ve learned in my family’s journey, that we can all get to a better place.”
